    Great infographic. It’s a great visual describing the outcome of the system of taxation we have chosen, where income is tax at a far higher rate than wealth, all in the name of prosperity.

    Reblogged this on Naive Politico and commented:
    It’s so unfortunate that our lack of information has numbed us to the reality that our (collective) lives are worse off than we thought. We live in a system in which not enough investment is being put into our lives, that only those that were lucky enough are able to make a better life. Suffice it to say, I truly believe we are lucky enough to at least live in the United States; however, it does not mean we cannot do a lot better. There are those people that really do deserve to be in the top or bottom 1% by the actions they have made, but I don’t think it should be the socioeconomic circumstances that you were born in that should be the majority reason of why you succeed or fail. I concede, it’s very complicated, but you have to agree, that this can’t possibly be fair.
